St George Illawarra on Wednesday afternoon unveiled their annual commemorative jersey to be worn on Anzac Day in the Dragons' traditional clash against the Sydney Roosters at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The Dragons' 2019 commemorative jersey will specifically honour the poppy – in the form of the club's traditional Red V – and its significance to war remembrance, as well as the military tradition, The Last Post.
The Last Post, a bugle call that signalled the end of the day while at war, remains significant at commemorative services and military funerals to the current day.
The Last Post image used at the bottom of the commemorative jersey was sourced from the Australian War Memorial (image reference C30973), who have once again partnered with the Dragons in 2019.

The Dragons' are very proud to house the Australian War Memorial (AWM) logo on the 2019 commemorative jersey; the club will also donate funds back to the AWM.
St George Illawarra fans will again be given the opportunity to bid on player-worn commemorative jerseys leading into the NRL's Anzac Round. The auction will commence on Wednesday, April 24 with a proportion of the funds again to be donated to the AWM.
The NRL's Anzac Round is an annual opportunity for rugby league to honour the generations of Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations for over 100 years.
The 2019 Dragons commemorative jerseys are available to pre-order online or in-store right now and are expected to arrive in the Dragons Team Store in mid-April.
